Whether it is for the marketing of a residential or commercial property, the acquisition of an income property, a house, a condo or a cottage on the waterfront…I am the one you need to represent you objectively in this important transaction.
I can advise the first time buyer as well as the investor, the new family or the older people, of whom I have a great facility. Over the years, I have worked with bereaved families in the settlement of family estates and I have the experience to guide you with sensitivity.
I am at your side to accompany you in this process from beginning to end and I make it my duty to be available to inform and reassure you, if necessary.
Built on its own lot, the single-family home is generally larger than other types of housing (townhouse, semi-detached, mobile home, condominium …) and has a front and back yard. You own the building and the land. You can modify or renovate as you wish according to the municipal by-law of the sector. Ideal for the young couple who wishes to start a family with services nearby (schools, daycare, parks…).
Condo unit, often in a large building with common walls and common access (lobby, elevator, hallway, garage…) and sometimes to a gym, pool and other services, which a single family home does not offer. However, there are monthly fees (condo fees) but the maintenance costs are low, because generally, the association manages the exterior of the building. Condominium owners are only responsible for repairs inside their units.
This type of property generates income and is considered by financial institutions to be a good asset, as opposed to others that are considered to be debts. It allows you some interesting tax advantages that other types of properties do not have. Generally, a single owner can occupy one unit and rent out the others using residential leases for units that are lived in by others or live elsewhere and rent out all the units. Its maintenance costs are generally higher than those of other property types.
Commercial properties generally attract sophisticated buyers, whether or not they already own residential properties, who are looking to diversify their investments. The owner may occupy the building and lease office or retail space. The advantage of commercial zoning is that it allows the owner to have both residential and commercial tenants (retail, offices, warehouses, manufacturers, cultural organizations, etc.).
When the time comes to settle an estate, dealing with a notary and a real estate broker takes a lot of stress and pressure off your shoulders. The death of a loved one is always destabilizing; emotions are running high. When you are designated as the liquidator of an estate, in addition to living through your grief, you must manage everything else… It is important to be accompanied by people you trust.
I am also here to guide you through these difficult moments…
I would like to take the time to thank you, Julie Bernier. In spite of this difficult period (Death of a mother so much loved) you guided us very well. You were very human, professional, organized and above all very understanding despite the difficult situation we were going through (Death of our beloved Mom, therefore the sale of her house). You answered all our questions and more. Moreover, you were very accessible at all times. I am very satisfied with your excellent service. I will highly recommend you. Thank you again for your time, your listening and your understanding.
After several transactions with Julie, for us and for other members of the family, and this, as much for the sale as for the purchase of a house, Julie was always very present. Being accompanied by Julie is synonymous with satisfaction. Your involvement with your clientele is a testament to your great experience. Your involvement has always favored quick transactions. Thank you for your patience and your precious advice.
Working with Julie, during a worldwide pandemic and ENTIRELY virtual (including visiting homes) was a unique and emotional experience. Her thoroughness, her follow-ups and her diversified experience in the field make her an essential member of your team for this adventure that is buying a house. It is necessary to be quick, to be well advised and to communicate effectively in the current context. We will always be grateful for Julie’s professionalism. Everything was done from the United States to our new home in Gatineau.
We would like to thank you for your judicious advice that facilitated the process of selling our house and buying our haven of peace. It is in this same spirit of confidence that we have warmly recommended your services to friends. They also underlined your rigor, your work ethic and your professionalism. A BIG thank you!
Buying a house, whether it’s your first or your fourth, is no easy task, especially in the midst of a pandemic. Thank you Julie for your experience, your dynamism, your straight talk and your sense of humour. These qualities help to alleviate and calm the many worries that can accompany the purchase of a new home. You were able to innovate, in this particular situation, by presenting our offer in a virtual way. Thanks to your positive energy and determination, we are now owners of this warm and beautiful home. Thank you for having played a major role in this happiness, which is, among other things, our new little corner of paradise.
